Roy Eberhardt has recently, and unhappily, arrived in Florida. Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Bullies are pretty much the same everywhere. One day while having his face smashed into the school-bus window, he spotted a boy about his age running away from the school bus. He had no book, no backpack, and, here's the odd part no shoes. And so the sensing a mystery Roy sets himself on the boy's trail.
Unfortunately, Roy's first acquaintance in Florida is Dana Matherson, a well-known bully. Then again, if Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is intriguing: he was running away from the school bus, carried no books, and-here's the odd part-wore no shoes. Sensing a mystery, Roy sets himself on the boy's trail. The chase introduces him to potty-trained alligators, a fake-fart champion, some burrowing owls, a renegade eco-avenger, and several extremely poisonous snakes with unnaturally sparkling tails. Roy has most definitely arrived in Carl Hiaasen's Florida. "From the Hardcover edition."
